A new version of Tesla Cybertruck is presented: four motors, control of each wheel, “tank” and “crab” modes
Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has unveiled a new version of the Cybertruck electric pickup that will offer four electric motors providing independent power to each wheel, as well as wheel steering and crab mode.
Earlier it was reported that Tesla removed Cybertruck specs and pricing from its website in October. The automaker was expected to update specs and pricing ahead of the production version launch in 2022. However, now the head of the company has announced a new version of the car.
Initially, a version with 4 motors and independent ultra-fast torque control of each wheel will be launched into production. He will have control of both the front and rear wheels, so he will not only be able to turn like a tank – he will be able to move diagonally like a crab.
Musk immediately confirmed that all-wheel steering would appear in Cybertruck in a future software update. This car will replace the previously announced three-engined version of the Cybertruck, which was supposed to be the first on the market at a price of $ 69,900 and a range of more than 800 km.
We will remind, earlier Elon Musk attracted the attention of the media with his new hairstyle.
